Well HiFm and Alive Entertainment seem to be spoiling us at the moment and I have to admit I haven't been this excited about a gig here since 30 Seconds To Mars rocked out in Muscat last year!
The concerts in Muscat kick off on February 15 with James Blunt - who sold out super quick and was brilliant when he came first time round in 2009. I guess he will be playing some of his latest album Some Kind Of Trouble alongside old favourites! Unfortunately I won't be able to make this concert :( but bet everyone who can will enjoy it! The event Facebook page is here.
Then on March 11 (yes, it is on a Sunday... stop complaining Grandmas!) - and this is the gig I am MOST excited about - is SNOW PATROL! I remember sometime last year saying that if they can some how bring Muse or Snow Patrol out here I would be so happy and they have done it! So you can all thank me now ;) I have seen them live in the UK and the band were great so hope they bring some of that magic to Muscat. The event Facebook page is here.
Tickets for both shows are priced at RO25 for general admission and RO50 for the fan pit, which if you want to be able to chill out and have a bit more space is well worth the extra cash. Doors for both shows open at 7pm, but the shows never seem to start before 8.30pm/9pm so no rush and as usual the events are at the InterContinental Hotel Gardens.
To buy a ticket you can either visit Bose Qurum City Centre, Alive box office in MQ (behind Costa) or the Al Ghazal at InterContinental hotel. For more info, you can call 95555699.
Who else would you like the station to bring out? I am still waiting for the other stations like Merge and Oman Radio to realise there is a lot of exposure to be taken for hosting events like these... Does anyone know if they plan on bringing anyone here at some point?
